Catching GIANT Fish in a FLOODED Creek

With the river blown out, I fished Chickamauga Creek with my buddy Phil. I was able to cast net about two dozen threadfin shad, which we used as bait. Our hunch was to catch catfish, but the freshwater drum would not keep off our baits. They were fun to catch, especially the big ones. Don’t ever underestimate the potential of a creek…you just never know what could be at the end of your line.
